So, its time to start, we all line up. Because its Mother's Day we start with my ds escorting me, then Chris escorted his mom...followed by bridesmaids.. then flowergirls and ring bearer. Now, a paper type runner had been laid to the alter, and with each person walking on it, it got more and more messed up...the flower girls did great...tripped a little at the beginning and went down at the very end.
Like 2 little bowling pins..plop, plop...so Chris bends down to pick them up...
and this is what dd sees when she steps out...chaos. She even says that was the moment someone walked in front of the door way. So she did not get her 'aww' moment,
Now those that I spoke to said she was breathtaking. And Chris says once he saw her, he did not see anything else. (he even asked dh if dh was there, cuz he says he does not remember seeing him)
The ceremony itself was beautiful, their personal vows brought tears to all of us,
the Chaplain gave us the perfect emphasis on faith and Christ, the unity sand was gorgeous, wonderful ceremony.
A funny moment, when asked about the rings, the ringbearer tried to give them the rings on the pillow (someone forgot to tell him these aren't the real rings) and you can see the perplexed look on his face when the actual ring was pulled from the best man's pocket.
When you look at the pictures, it is beautiful.
Like I tell dd, "We fooled the masses"...looking at the pics you don't see the sheer craziness leading up to this.
The flowers look like they were planned to be that way...
people would tell me, "It comes together" and it did!!
But we aren't done yet. We had a very interesting reception...
